Plant some trees for fu­ture shade

Isis Town and Country - - News -

NA­TIONAL Tree Day hap­pens to co­in­cide with the Childers Fes­ti­val this Sun­day.

To cel­e­brate the oc­ca­sion Isis Bush­care will be hold­ing a Na­tive Tree Sale.

Isis Bush­care sec­re­tary Margie Zea said the day was about en­cour­ag­ing people to plant a tree and con­trib­ute to Aus­tralia’s fu­ture.

“We like to use the old say­ing ‘some­one is sit­ting in the shade to­day be­cause some­one planted a tree a long time ago’,” Ms Zea said.

Ms Zea en­cour­aged com­mu­nity mem­bers to drop in on their way to or from the fes­ti­val and sup­port the cause.

The stall will be set up at the Childers His­tor­i­cal Com­plex, Tay­lor St.

Na­tive tree seedlings will be for sale at $2.50 each. Trays of 40 Queens­land white gum seedlings (Eu­ca­lyp­tus ar­gophloia) are also avail­able at a cost of $30.

For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Margie on 4126 3520 or 0439 583 169.
